Under 30s and New COVID Vaccine Update

The NHS will get the Right vaccine to you at the Right time based on JCVI guidance and updated data review. It remains extremely important to attend your vaccination appointment when asked to attend. As per current guidance, people under 30s will be offered an alternative vaccine to Astra Zeneca vaccine if they haven’t received their first dose yet.

All those who have received a first dose of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine should continue to be offered a second dose of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, irrespective of age.

It is vitally important for those who are invited for their second dose to attend and receive the second dose.

The MHRA has concluded that more work is needed to review the matter but that based on the current evidence, the benefits of the AZ Covid vaccine continue to outweigh the risks for the ‘vast majority’ of people.
